refractionRefraction

A light wave will undergo certain behaviors when it encounters the end of the medium. Specifically, there will be some reflection off the boundary and some transmission into the new medium. The transmitted wave undergoes refraction (or bending) if it approaches the boundary at an angle.
 

Reflection

Reflection is the reversal in direction of a light ray upon encountering a boundary. The law of reflection states that the angle of reflection and angle of incidence are equal.
